"Expert breeders and trainers of horses permit
their own children to fade and die for want of ap-
plying the knowledge they have but do not use."

"Owners of Angora cats who know how their pets have become beautiful as the result of but a few generations of intelligent selection, do not dream of the wondrous results, were the same law applied to their own race."

"The world, thoughtleşsly overlooks the principles employed by Burbank and other successful hybridists, not realizing that each discovery has its corresponding application to the human species."

Dear Mr. Sercombe:

“Correct Thinking' is to me the most universal and unsectarian book I have ever read. "Correct Thinking'' is extending in all directions the gospel taught by Darwin, Huxley, Tyndal, Haeckel, Spencer and Whitman, for the enlightenment and general benefit of the masses. It is the Savior promised.
